Thanks for Attending
the NAPW Power Networking Event in Washington, DC!


We networked, we inspired and we had a fantastic time! Thank you to all attendees, vendors, sponsors and speakers for your participation in a powerful day of networking and success. It was great to see so many attendees dressed in RED to raise awareness for Heart Health Month. NAPW President and host Star Jones led the event and the “Power of One” panel with guest speakers—AHA Ambassador and heart disease survivor since 2006, Gail Harris-Berry, and Carol Loftur-Thun Interim Executive Director, My Sister’s Place.


NAPW Washington, DC Local Chapter President Lauren-Nikai Harry, took the stage to welcome attendees.


NAPW members and attendees participated in “Photos for Philanthropy” with Star to benefit the NAPW Foundation and its four philanthropic partners – the American Heart Association, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Dress for Success and Girls Inc.
